I want to start a new thread story. Not sure how long it will be and I may use different prompts: #vss365 #vssmagic #vssnature etc etc ... I love reading about legends and folk lore, and in my fantasy writing I often create my own myths. So this will be just a fun exercise...
According to #lore &myths of old,griffins nestled on these cliffs long ago. They swooped down on the unsuspecting;carried them off never to be seen again.
Griffins were not elemental creatures,but air & earth did have dominion over them; their only enemy -fire.
#vss365 #vssmagic
"I helped your troupe avoid #shadow and #gore," said the dark wizard simply, implying that he saved us from the mythical griffins. I gaped at him. "And now for what you promised."

"No," I was careful not to get trapped in words, "I said: after you summon her."

1/ Serious End-of-Life 🧵

…He told her, “Never give up on me because I’ll keep fighting to live.” What does it mean when a person valiantly asks this of a spouse & then illness leads to #transplant, #infection, and eventually #life support that doesn’t help?

2/ First I just listened to her heartache and saw their immense love. “I made a #promise, Doctor.” My personal commitment became to help this couple uphold that promise, yet medical options had long since run out & failed him. I asked her to come into the hall.

3/ Always go out outside a pt’s room to discuss anything you don’t want the patient to hear, even when he is in a dense coma. Assume dying pts hear everything said & respect their dignity as your number one goal in all interactions. Here is what I said…

Positive #transformations are always great to see as an end product. The journey to a transformation however is almost always hidden. On the first day of #phd #gradschool in @umasschemengg, I introduced myself by saying....contd.

@AcademicChatter
....I came to the US for the ‘#science’ and ‘#fitness’ industry that is known to be the best in the world. Everyone got a good laugh 😂 out of it. However, I wasn’t kidding at all 😈! I always had this vision of a scientist 👨🏾‍🔬who is also ripped to the core physically 💪🏾.
In that pursuit, I reached my best physique towards the end of year 2 of my #PhD when I also got #married 👩🏻‍🤝‍👨🏽 to @priyankaitkar9. I was still not quite there with the #science. Today, 4 years later, I am successfully @PhDone2020 and getting close to the best shape of my life!

I'm going to purchase a #flowcytometer. Had 8 colors, and want ~15. Need a stable easy to use and learn workhorse. Have been recommended these instruments to various degree; please vote and motivate your pick! Will buy respondents drinks! #promise #io
Surprised not more people vote for the Aurora or Northern Lights, but maybe spectral flow is just not that common yet?
Thank you all for voting and commenting! This is really valuable to us when we decide which instrument to purchase.

#IBelieve..

This is #TooGoodNotToShare..

We spend the best years of our lives waiting for a #Miracle when the miracle is #Life itself

We wait for approval,we wait for promotion,we wait for the bonus,we wait for freedom,we wait for a revelation AND in all this,we forget to live
Today, I make this promise to myself. No more waiting. I will live each day like it was the last day of my life. And I will live each day like it is the first day of the rest of my life with no regrets of the day that was..
I will be #Courageous.
Not courageous like a #Soldier under fire, but courageous enough to not wait. Courageous enough to #Live every moment to the hilt.

#Courageous enough to know that the only losses I should fear are the loss of #Love and #Respect, for myself & for those around me.
